The workshop will accept submissions of technical papers (full papers) and extended abstracts (position papers) written in Portuguese or English, not exceeding 12 and 6 pages, respectively. Submissions should follow the template of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC).

All the (full and position) papers will be judged according to following criteria: adequacy to workshop scope, relevance, technical quality, clarity, originality and evaluation of results. The evaluation of results is desired, but is not a precondition for submission.
